Day 3 in Mexico City: Coworking and wandering

Our third day in Mexico City, I woke up early and worked from the Airbnb. One of the many advantages of working remotely is that I can travel and work, so on days where Rachael wants to go on outings to shops and such, I can get some work done and then join her in…

Day 2 in Mexico City: Art, Conchas, and Mercados

This morning Rachael and I got an early start thanks to the one-hour timezone change. We walked down the street from our Airbnb to a little breakfast cafe called Lalo. The streets were practically empty at 8am. I think we passed one other person out on the sidewalk. Most shops were shuttered and only a…

Day 1 in Mexico City: our first day walking around

What a trip getting to Mexico City. Rachael and I started our day at 4:30am getting dressed and ready for the airport then taking an Uber to our local airport before flying to Miami. We ended up with plenty of time to spare since neither Rachael nor I checked any luggage (hurray for packing light!)….

Italian Ladies Heritage Night and Roller Coaster

One thing I really like about New York is the ability to do seemingly anything you want at any given time. For example, last night, Rebecca and I took the subway out to Coney Island to see a minor-league baseball game and ride roller coasters. Rebecca’s friend got us all tickets for the game and we…

Storm King Sculpture Garden

Rebecca and I borrowed her family’s extra car and drove up to Storm King Art Center,  a giant sculpture garden in upstate New York named for it’s closeness to Storm King Mountain. It’s about an hour and a half drive North of New York City and once you’re out of the city, it’s quite peaceful. The…
